#AceHistoryNews – Nov.08: X-rays are electromagnetic energy waves that act similarly to light rays, but at wavelengths approximately 1,000 times shorter than those of light: Rontgen’s discovery was labeled a medical miracle and X-rays soon became an important diagnostic tool in medicine, allowing doctors to see inside the human body for the first time without exploratory surgery #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7369 During the Balkan War, X-rays were first used on a military battlefield to find bullets and broken bones inside patients. Scientists were quick to realize the benefits of X-rays, but slower to comprehend radiation’s harmful effects………..During the 1930s – 50s, in fact, many American shoe stores featured shoe-fitting fluoroscopes that used to X-rays to enable customers to see the bones in their feet; it wasn’t until the 1950s that this practice was determined to be risky……….Wilhelm Rontgen received numerous accolades for his work, including the first Nobel Prize in physics in 1901, yet he never tried to patent his discovery……….Today, X-ray technology is widely used in medicine, material analysis and devices such as airport security scanners #OTD #AceHistoryNews
